Cisco 1142 in Repeater Mode

Hi,

I am a bit confused of the repeater functionality in the mentione AP, my concerns are:

1- Will each radio be dedicated to one function (for example 2.4 GHz for user access and 5.0 GHz for repeater functionality)?

2- Will the internet speed for users be affected when using the access point in repeater mode (no ethernet)?

3- Can an Autonomous AP function as a repeater?

4- Is there any license required?

5- What is the signal overlap requirements between the two Wired and non Wired AP?

6- Can the non wired AP be work as a repeater for another non wired AP (similar to cascading)?

Thanks

1- Will each radio be dedicated to one function (for example 2.4 GHz for user access and 5.0 GHz for repeater functionality)?

Look at this link

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/access_point/12.2_11_JA/configuration/guide/s11rep.html#wp1034746

2- Will the internet speed for users be affected when using the access point in repeater mode (no ethernet)?

Yes, you loose half the throughput on each consecutive repeater

3- Can an Autonomous AP function as a repeater?

Yes, see link in #1

4- Is there any license required?

No

5- What is the signal overlap requirements between the two Wired and non Wired AP?

See link in #1

6- Can the non wired AP be work as a repeater for another non wired AP (similar to cascading)?

Yes, the first repeater, you already loose half the throughout. Each repeater after that your cut the throughput in half again.

Cisco 1142 in Repeater Mode

Thanks Scott,

One point,

When you say the throughput will be cut to half, if I have a 20 MB in the first (wired AP), on the second it will be 10 MB and on the third it will be 5 MB,

Sorry for jumping in. But let me reply as Scott did not reply yet (if you permit Scott).

Yes. What you explained is what Scott means.

20 MB will be almost 10 MB if the client is connecting to the repeater AP (not the wired one).

If there is a second repeater

switch <----> WiredAP (((((---))))) Repeater1 (((((--)))))) Repeater2 ((((((---)))) Client

The client connected to Repeater2 will receive half throughput it would have if it is connecgted to Repeater1.

Re: Cisco 1142 in Repeater Mode

Using a Cisco 1142 Autonomous Access-Point

Can i use the 5 Ghz Radio to make the uplink of repeater and the 2.4 Ghz radio to give service to the users? Like Mesh technology?
